We're always happy to list interceptions by quarterback or by defender, but rarely do we see interception stats by receiver. So I put one together. These are not interceptions I have qualitatively determined to be the receivers fault, but simply all interceptions when the receiver was listed as the intended target.
Obviously, the QB, the lines, and the secondary all play roles. Interceptions could be considered the culmination of the efforts and errors of all 22 players on the field. Situations and luck play their part as well. And this list does not necessarily mean the guys at the top aren't doing their job. It could mean just the opposite. Maybe they're drawing more than their share of double coverage, or they are their QB's security blanket--the guy his QB instinctively looks for when in a panic. Still, it's a different way to look at one of the most important plays in the game.
